The federal bank regulatory agencies on Friday announced an interim final rule that provides temporary relief for certain community banking organizations related to certain regulations & reporting requirements as a result, in large part, of their growth in size from the coronavirus response.
Community banking organizations are subject to different rules & requirements based on their risk profile & asset size. Due to participating in federal coronavirus response programs—such as the Paycheck Protection Program—& other lending that supports the U.S. economy, many community banking organizations have experienced rapid & unexpected increases in their sizes, which are generally expected to be temporary. The temporary increase in size could subject community banking organizations to new regulations or reporting requirements.
With regard to the requirements covered by the interim final rule, community banking organizations that have crossed a relevant threshold generally will have until 2022 to either reduce their size, or to prepare for new regulatory & reporting standards. The rule applies to community banking organizations financial institutions with less than $10 billion in total assets as of December 31, 2019. Community banking organizations with under $10 billion in assets may have fewer resources available to prepare & comply with previously unanticipated regulatory requirements, especially during a time of economic disruption.
The rule will be effective immediately upon publication in the Federal Register, & comments will be accepted for 60 days after publication in the Federal Register.
